This is a gorgeous little cookbook with photos for most recipes, and easy to follow instructions. And though it doesn't say it in the title (that would probably get pretty wordy), the recipes are all free of refined sugars too, and lower in sugar overall than your average recipes. A definite goldmine for our sweets-loving household.
My husband is allergic to eggs, so this does limit the number or recipes I could try directly from the book without alterations. I would say that a little over half of the recipes call for eggs, but some don't ... and those my friends, are true gems. (The author notes "egg-free" right next to the title, so helpful!)
The first recipe I made from this cookbook was the Red Rock Rolls (onion/oregano version), and then I moved onto the Cinnamon Raisin Bagels. Both recipes were amazingly delicious (the dough alone is addictive), and have become repeats each week in our house since my husband thankfully loves them (so low in sugar and they take care of his mid-day sweets cravings!).
I can't wait to enjoy the rest of the recipes, as the results are spot on, and the author really knows how to add flavor. This cookbook is a true must for anyone wanting to dabble in grain-free baking.
